motorola transition. interesting stuff going on. >> i'm still trying to understand why they did the deal in the first place. either way, they rooi revised up their bill for job cuts at that motorola mobility unit, also warning perhaps of further restructuring that could result in what they call significant additional charges. separately though, google and five u.s. publishers settled a seven-year-old dispute. they had a suit, they settled it. a lot of google news. i think the stock hit another all-time high today. >> applies materials a max today. on the other side of the board, under a plift pressure. >> stocks down .5%. they'll cut their work force by 6% to 9%. that's 900 to 1,300 jobs. last night you heard a lot of talk about solar energy. part of a problem is the slowdown in solar panels, some of their groups suffering. job cuts unfortunately coming at applied materials. >> time warner cable is getting a pop today. so is our own comcast, by the way. >> very nice. it's been a good year to be a cable company. year to date, up 55%. up .7% today. company expected to report stronger
